Philosophy of the Program
Auburn Rec boys basketball is a developmental basketball program for Auburn boys grades 2nd -8th grade. The program is designed for boys that want to develop their skills at a competitive level. Fundamentals used by the Auburn High School boys basketball team will be taught. Sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, discipline, positive attitude, and goal setting will be emphasized. The coaches, together with the Auburn High School basketball coaching staff make up a basketball committee that makes all basketball policy and philosophy, and will ultimately hold our basketball community accountable for good sportsmanship. Auburn City Rec coaches will be chosen and trained by the Auburn High School coaching staff. Please treat them with courtesy.
The Auburn Rec Boys basketball program is to provide young men the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the game and to develop their individual skills. In order to succeed, parents and players must exhibit good sportsmanship in practice and game situations. Any unsportsmanlike or inappropriate behavior by parents or players may result in disciplinary action including, but not limited to, warnings, removal from practice, loss of game playing time or removal from the team.
Participation and Cost
Once registered, each player will be placed on a team according to their grade in school and will practice twice a week. The Auburn City Rec boys basketball program will be participating in the Lincoln Youth Basketball League in Lincoln, Nebraska under director Matt Cumro. These games will take place on either Saturday or Sunday and we are requesting to play double headers every other weekend. Each team will participate in area tournaments including one hosted in Auburn. Car-pooling will be available for both league and tournament travel.
Cost of the program is $60 per player, but the actual cost of the program is well over $100 per player. To make up the difference in program costs for registration fee and tournament fees, each family will be asked to help at the concession stand or gate at the tournament in which the Auburn City Rec will host in our gymnasiums.
